Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

UMAP Generation in the editor?

A project that I am working with will benefit from having a plugin that we can feed data into (height maps, objects and possibly object locations), and get a .umap spit out. Is this something that can be done in UE4?

Is there some way I can create a umap object in C++ and start attaching objects into the scene and finally save it somehow? This would not need to be done at game runtime and would simply be an editor plugin/extension that the user would initiate to get the output files

Product Version: UE 4.11

I am also interested in this. It would be very beneficial if the process of converting heightmap data/materials/weightmaps/streaming distances/etc to umaps was separated from the editor into a program that could be integrated into a toolchain, or the umap format exposed so that an offline tool could be created to generate umaps. I am working on using real world databases in unreal and the process is very cumbersome.
